Toronto, Ontario, Canada (December 10, 2009) - MetalCorp Limited (TSX-V: MTC) is re-pricing its previously announced proposed non-brokered private placement (the "Offering"). The Offering has been amended to increase the number of flow- through units (each, a "Unit") offered to up to 8,108,108 Units instead of 6,000,000 Units and to reduce the subscription price to $0.185 per Unit instead of $0.25 per Unit, for aggregate proceeds of up to $1,500,000. All other terms of the Offering remain the same. Each Unit will be comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of a flow- through common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share at any time for a period of two years, at a price of $0.35 in the first year and $0.45 in the second year.

MetalCorp will pay finder's fees of up to 6.5% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering, in cash or treasury common shares, and finder's warrants equal in number to up to 6.5% of the number of Units sold. Each finder's warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share and one-half of a non-flow-through Warrant for a price of $0.185.

The gross proceeds to MetalCorp from the Offering will be used to fund exploration expenses which qualify as "Canadian Exploration Expenses" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) in connection with MetalCorp's projects in Ontario, including its BL14 copper/zinc project at its Big Lake property and at its projects at its Hemlo East and Pickle Lake gold properties.

All the securities issued pursuant to this private placement will be subject to a four (4) month hold period.
